Is a $250 carbonfiber fork really better than a $80 steel fork?
I have a steel Soma Double Cross frame that I'm building as a commuter and long distance bike.
I have a steel CX fork from Redline that I can use with this frame. Is a Carbon Fiber fork @ $250 a worthwhile investment? What do you recommend?
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
